Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Outline

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering came from the department of electrical engineering at Fukui Technical Junior College founded in 1939 and has a long history and tradition. Throughout the age from the “department of electrical engineering" to the “department of electronics engineering," we have turned out many graduates who are now active as engineers and researchers in many areas of key industries and education/research institutions. Starting in 1999, the name was changed to the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in response to the changes and requirements of society.

Thanks to advances in science and technology related to electronics as represented by the development of computers and micro-electronics, such as transistors and ICs, and the development of space technologies and the utilization of atomic power, we have realized a civilization with an abundance of material. However, in fundamental areas, destruction of the global environment is advancing due to the mass consumption of rich fossil energy resources. On the other hand, the population of the world is growing steadily, which is accelerating the consumption of electrical energy at a rapid pace. More specifically, reclamation of clean, sustainable energy is an important issue that relates to the continued existence of a highly civilized society in the 21st century.

Features of Curriculum

To take a full and active part in society in the future, it is necessary to acquire fundamental academic ability and actively learn and study in specialized fields in response to the rapid development and changes in science and technology in the electrical and electronics engineering fields. The educational curriculum of the university stresses a steady grasp of the specialized basic abilities by students in the electrical and electronics engineering fields that cover a broad area and to cultivate a wide range of liberal education and develop in-depth insight. The abilities to fully address future development in these fields will be cultivated by combining lectures, drills, experiments, and seminars based on a systematized curriculum.
